SLDI offering consulting services for grant-writing support
African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC)
Tue, Aug 2, 2016
For a 6 month pilot period, SLDI has hired part-time consultants in 8 countries to help sisters with the grant-writing process.
Finally, this year SLDI added a new component to better support alumnae in their grant-writing and organizational planning efforts. The Phase III evaluation revealed that SLDI alumnae could benefit from consulting services, as many alumnae reported the need for ongoing support and consultation on the grant-writing process, creating budgets and writing effective strategic and financial plans. Acting on this need, SLDI has now hired part-time consultants in 8 countries: Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
The consultant will review grant proposals, financial plans, strategic plans, and other project materials for SLDI alumnae. The Hilton Foundation approved this new component and ASEC is piloting this project for six months. Evaluation data will be collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of engaging consultants.
